essentially. they just went away. >> a couple things we do know, libyan security is major interest in the country. if you ask the libyan people one top concern would be security. the host country security, which we used to have to protect the u.s. property, embassy and consulate in libya is not effective. that is number one. number two, at the consulate there were no marines to provide internal security. they're at the embassy. at the consulate itself, normally i think we would have diplomatic service, security details to protect it. i don't know if they were present. this much we do know, just by looking at the pictures, the people in that consulate were in a firefight using military terms, outgunned, out armed and numbers truly make a difference in a fight like that. despite people who may have a lot of skill, if your opponent has time, ammunition and considerably more weapons that is probably going to move in their favor. that's probably what happened here.
